Does Yahoo own Tor? Sorry I am a noob when it comes to Tor and yahoo. I did hear about Firefox and mozilla, but are these owned by Yahoo?

1 Answer 1


Yahoo does not own Firefox or Mozilla. Firefox is created by Mozilla and Yahoo pays Mozilla to be the default search engine.

Tor and the Tor Browser are created by The Tor Project. The Tor Browser uses a modified version of Mozilla Firefox as it's base.

Neither of them are owned by Yahoo.
